Or maybe its not the machine but because i'm on tank not town water??!!wendyIt's the Machine !!My wife never realised how clean you can get clothes till I persuaded her to get a front loader.20, and it's already on the washing line and dried, and its now 10.It also seems to confirm that Top Loaders aren't much good.Any difference in front / top load washing machine effectiveness can be largely explained by the greatly longer cycle times (up to 3 times longer) of front loaders.I brought i top loader when i got here now regret it. Soaking removes the difference.Personally I am taking mine (and I am a bloke, so whats that all about) but at the end of the day.Not just a few days ago there was a post on here with regards to washing machines and the consensus there was take your front loader. Its brilliant, it takes 8 pool towels at a time, has no agitator to wind up the clothes which was the old problem with them, and like Meg says, soak the stuff for 20 minutes if its really dirty and its as good as a front loader.I'm buying anything new in the UK, I want my warranty to be valid not from the other side of the world.They use scary amounts of water tho. Soaking removes the difference.Originally posted by ianj Very bizarre.The tub is huge and fits lots in, but it doesn't seem to get anything clean.Useful if you are in a hurry.The jeans came out spotlessAgreed !!!1) Wait until Oz to buy new2) Ensure I buy a front loading machineCheers all16 weeks to go 'til Brisbane Originally posted by irishmolly Agreed !!!1) Wait until Oz to buy new2) Ensure I buy a front loading machineCheers all16 weeks to go 'til Brisbane Waiting will be good as Oz white goods (large kitchen appliances) are much better than here.The choice is yours.The tub is huge and fits lots in, but it doesn't seem to get anything clean.The wash must have only taken about 1 hr today, maybe because it wasn't a full load.If its on its last legs then don't but if it's not then do. (Joking ladies )I'd wait and buy one here, its a long way for the repairman to come if it goes wrong in the guarantee period!Another reason for waiting till you get here is generally washing powders/liquids are formulated to match the habits of the country they are used in, which includes the type and design of the machine.I'm buying anything new in the UK, I want my warranty to be valid not from the other side of the world.20, and it's already on the washing line and dried, and its now 10.Originally posted by dotty 2 hours 38 minutes!!That is why I wont buy a front loader, we often do 4 loads a day, so I'd have a washer on for 10 hours a day! Trouble is our top loader is on its last legs, every time I put wash in I ask it nicely to last 3 more months.The wash must have only taken about 1 hr today, maybe because it wasn't a full load.It does also have a quick wash option for 35 minutes.Originally posted by Megalania Pffft.Any suggestions ?Thanks.If its on its last legs then don't but if it's not then do.I'm a bloke too, and I just put a load of clothes in my Front Loader, sorry, in MY Wifes front loader.Any difference in front / top load washing machine effectiveness can be largely explained by the greatly longer cycle times (up to 3 times longer) of front loaders.I started it at 8.I agree about buying new in the country you will be in, whenever possible, to get the full warranty benefit. More marketeer bolderdash.The choice is yours.I should have got a front loader. Also, you will find that on the whole, water is softer here than most places in the UK, so local washing products dont contain so many additives (zeolites etc) as they do in the UKYou may find therefore that the washing powders here dont really do as good a job as those you currently use.Our LG takes 2hrs 38min to do a whites wash.probably.It does also have a quick wash option for 35 minutes. So some crap game show host once said.I should have got a front loader.Originally posted by irishmolly Any suggestions ?Search the archives.I brought i top loader when i got here now regret it.Agreed,when my wife was in the UK, she was absolutely amazed when I took a pair of jeans I had been wearing whilst working under a car that leaked oil like the Exon Valdez, rubbed in some Asda laundry liquid and bunged them into the front loader.Originally posted by ABCDiamond A Highly probable reason.I agree about buying new in the country you will be in, whenever possible, to get the full warranty benefit.I used to work with a women from NZ and her partner works for Fisher Pykell (I think thats how you spell it?).Oh well, which to believe.According to people on that thread Oz toploaders are renowned for making clothes appear grubby, inconsistent washing and damaging of clothes.I think a top loader gets it done in 30 mins.I'm using the correct powder (now ).Tracey.Originally posted by ABCDiamond Funny thing is that our LG has a mind of its own, it said 2h38m when it started, but it must have finished within 1 hour.Ahh, thats the OZ Top Loaders, we are saying to buy an OZ Front Loader.I think a top loader gets it done in 30 mins.Funny thing is that our LG has a mind of its own, it said 2h38m when it started, but it must have finished within 1 hour.probably.I started it at 8.40.What am I doing wrong?My Bosch didn't clean clothes in the UK either.The Top Loaders are rubbish at cleaning clothes.Our LG takes 2hrs 38min to do a whites wash.I wouldn't want her to think its my responsibility all the time I agree to take a front loader, if its OK, but the orignal question was Is it worthwhile buying a new front loading washing machine or waiting until we get to Brisbane to buy a new one and the consensus is, I think, to buy a new Front Loader when they get here, not buy one in UK and ship it over almost immediately.When you get here you will find that front loading machines are pretty thin on the ground, aussies love their top-loaders, and again washing powders generally are formulated for these machines.I got a huge double oven and a tumble dryer from him absolutely fantastic!Don't want to leave the oven but she assures me I can get one over there.You can get front loaders here (we have one), but be a bit over-generous with the powder or liquid, things get a little foamy!If you are thinking of buying new i'd wait till you get to oz.Or maybe its not the machine but because i'm on tank not town water??!!wendyOriginally posted by WendyMike If you are thinking of buying new i'd wait till you get to oz.Very bizarre.A Highly probable reason.Pffft. The wimmin have had much banter on top and front loaders.Personally I am taking mine (and I am a bloke, so whats that all about) but at the end of the day. So some crap game show host once said.I have an LG front loader and it doesn't get my clothes clean.Not just a few days ago there was a post on here with regards to washing machines and the consensus there was take your front loader.Unless its farily new and working well, don't take it.Jane
